It is not something you expect to happen to a 20 year old hockey player. 

Gatineau Olympiques forward Yannick Dube called team officials Sunday morning complaining about tightness in his chest.  Dube had been out of the Olympiques lineup with a rib injury.  This pain, his new pain was on the other side. 

He was told to see a doctor immediately.  Soon Dube was in a Gatineau hospital being treated for a pulmonary embolism.  Head coach Benoit Groulx says the news shocked everyone in the organization.  He says Dube is doing well in hospital. 

Dube came to Gatineau in a trade over the summer with Victoriaville.  He has seven goals and four assists in 23 games this season.  The Olympiques are home Wednesday in a 7:30 start against Baie Comeau.  Before the game, the team will honour former head coach Claude Julien, who is now head coach of the Boston Bruins.
